Region's first Development Weekend rated a success by those that attended. The weather helped as there was a good dose of Spring sunshine. By the end of the Sunday there were three main outcomes 

  • Coaches going away with a better understanding of the ethos of the new Personal Performance Awards and how to use them in their own settings to inspire and encourage participation.
  • An Aspirant Coach with a really clear understanding of what a Coach Assessment looks like and relishing the opportunity he had to work with some learners and think about the process of improving paddlers.
  • Lastly, learners who had volunteered to be coached going away full of new found confidence in their paddling. They were also asking when the region will be organising another weekend.

Thanks for a great day I found it refreshingly positive. Got some great coaching tips and so nice to be back at LOPC.
